Rule 8 – Female and Male Equality
Rule 8 – In matters of politics, work, compensation and rights, men and women are the same; only their individual abilities separates them.
This code seems obvious to us today, but for almost all of recorded human history the sexes in most societies have been separated in these matters. When life was harsher and mankind didn’t live that long, this situation may well have benefited mankind, but now it is a burden on mankind and needs to be changed.
In today’s society what is needed is to get a job done, and since most jobs are not life threatening it is mostly irrelevant if a male or a female is doing it, just so whomever is doing it can do it. And, like buying a product, you pay for the service, not what gender is doing the service.
